This is an introductory course by the founder of Enneagram of Essence - a free online Enneagram community and accredited certification program. This course is self-guided and takes 3-4 hours to complete in as many sessions as you would like. It is structured by 11 lectures about 15 minutes each and 2 videos with the instructors. The 9 lectures on each type follow a standard structure developed by the instructor who has over 20 years of experience with the Enneagram.
You should take this course if you are interested in learning about the enneagram, personality types, personal growth, compassion, or ego-transcendence. This is the first step toward more deeply understanding yourself, your loved ones, and others in your life!
This is a great place to begin with the Enneagram and if you are interested in more, visit the Enneagram of Essence website and join our free community!
The next step is to understand the importance of Essence in the Enneagram model. Many programs do not emphasize essence, but it is THE healing mechanism of the Enneagram. Insight is the first step - learning the details of the types. Nourishing and healing the personality types is the next step - the Enneagram is deeper than personality, its an invitation to know the essence of your type. When you are ready to go deeper - beyond theory and insight - visit the Enneagram of Essence!
Who this course is for:
- Anyone interested in personality, character, & ego fixation
- Anyone interested in growth and awakening
- Anyone interested in increasing compassion for self and others
- No prior knowledge of the Enneagram is needed
Greetings, I am a licensed and IEA accredited Enneagram psychotherapist, teacher, and founder of the Enneagram of Essence certification program and community.
I specialize in sensory practices to awaken body awareness, soothe the nervous system, and anchor and embody essence. My devotion lies in showing people how to be nourished by the Essence of the Enneagram.
I had the privilege of growing up with the Enneagram, learning from my mother, Lissa Friedman, PhD, who was an original Enneagram teacher from Oscar Ichazo's Arica School. Over the course of two decades, I studied with numerous Enneagram experts and have been teaching for the past ten years.
My expertise lies in Enneagram Essence and Embodiment, and I have developed an internationally accredited model that offers in-depth and practical insights.
I take great pride in the excellence of my certification program, which provides a comprehensive understanding of the Enneagram, and my online essence community serves as a source of inspiration for individuals seeking personal growth and transformation.
